This is a dual-credit chemistry class that we have made available for the first time in our high school. I have 10 highly motivated students who are taking this class in order to earn college credits in Chemistry while completing their final year of high school.
These students are bright, hard-working, and ambitious.
They are involved in many clubs and organizations on campus. Five of my students are members of the marching band, including a drum major. One of my students is the student body president. Another is a varsity football player. I have a student who is an athletic trainer and one who is a cross country runner. Several of these students participate in state-wide academic competitions.
The class atmosphere is positive and energized. I love the way these students are always excited about learning. These are some of the brightest leaders in our school.
The items listed in this project are required for one of the labs planned for this semester. In this lab, students will investigate and determine the empirical formula for magnesium oxide experimentally.
To determine the empirical formula of magnesium oxide, magnesium metal must be heated intensely in air until it ignites.
This chemical reaction must take place in a ceramic crucible with cover. Before and after the reaction, the weight of chemicals must be measured accurately.
Our science labs are not well equipped, and funding is very limited. Without proper equipment, my students won't be able to conduct this necessary lab.
